Now Playing: E3 2020 Is Officially Canceled - GS News Update

Microsoft was scheduled to share more details about the Xbox Series X--its next-generation console that was revealed last year, and is launching this holiday. Although Microsoft has been detailing its new hardware steadily over the past few weeks, its E3 showing was expected to have pricing news, new game reveals, and more.

E3 2020 was canceled over fears of the spread of the coronavirus, which has already led to the cancelation of GDC, SXSW, and more. Although the LACC will be empty for the show this year, the ESA expects to still hold E3 in 2021. Other companies will also move ahead with alternate E3 plans for this year; Ubisoft is exploring a digital event of its own, while Limited Run Games will still host its press conference.
